Dr.Sarnat seems more concerned with being right than helping patients.I feel he has a huge Christ complex. Everthing comes down to I'm right you're wrong I'm the Doctor you're not. In the meantime the patient gets lost in the shuffle while he engages in the idealogical settling of scores. All because we disagreed with his choice of drug to treat epilepsy (dilantin). With so many new drugs available why go to the old stand by with all the bad side effects? Dr.S did not take well to us providing a list of alternatives but conceded. Ever since then everything is a battle of wills. This finally culminates in him going behind our back to our physcian to suggest a psycological exam citing our daughter as being socially stunted due to our home schooling. Nothing to do with the problem, just a stab at us, not professional. Still had to see Dr.S, or wait 6 months for another neurologist. Last visit, he books it,we saw the nurse, the resident Dr.and after 2 hrs. Dr.S was a No Show. No class.

Dr. S. is a pediatric neurologist. Our daughter saw him when she began having seizures. He initially put her on such a high dose of anti-seizure medication that she had very unpleasant side effects (loss of appetite, anorexia-like symptoms, mood swings, and difficulty concentrating). Once the dosage was decreased (on the recommendation of a different neurologist since Dr. S. was out of town at the time), she was fine. During our last visit, we reported that she was feeling much better since she was on a lower dose of meds. All the side-effects were gone and better still, she'd had no seizures. A couple of weeks later, our family dr. got a report from Dr. S. stating that my daughter was depressed and he recommended a psychiatric evaluation!! So instead of acknowledging that it was the meds that caused my daughter's problems, he claimed that she needs a psychiatrist. Fortunately, our family dr. is one who LISTENS to her patients, unlike Dr. Sarnat. My trust in him is gone.
